The Charger's style hasn't changed all that significantly on the outside since it was introduced for 2005, but it still stands out as one of a kind.
With a Coke-bottle look alongside, a high beltline, and the Dodge crosshair grille, along with its unmistakeable tail and bar of LED lamps, this sedan has a commanding shape, careful retro-modern detailing, and an aura of masculinity all around. Forget the Dukes of Hazzard and any NASCAR associations for the moment; this sedan looks curvy and exotic from some angles, blunt and punishing from others.
From the side and at the rear the Charger looks at its most muscle-tastic, particularly in dark metallic orange or with any of the packages that add lower bodywork. In back, 164 LED taillamps comprise a racetrack of rear lights that spans across, and the squarish tail is topped off with a spoiler on some trims.
A couple of years ago the dash was smoothed over, with a design that's less flamboyant but a lot more pleasant and practical—and driver-oriented. The materials are better-coordinated than before—almost up to the level of a luxury car—with metallic-printed plastic with some wide but nicely contoured stretches.
